1. I hope you don’t mind if I get a little lukewarm
    If this passion inside dies a little each day
    I hope you understand
    If I start drifting away

    See, I start out real strong
    Going for the prize
    But I let obstacles get in my way
    Strength fizzles and dies away

    I’ve never meant to hurt you
    I never meant to use you
    No, I never wanted to break your heart
    You shouldn’t give me the power to

    I try to love responsibly
    Slow burn rather than a quick spark
    But some things you just can’t control
    Some things you just can’t touch

    So I’ll try not to hurt you
    But here’s my disclaimer
    I’m easily distracted
    I like my options open &
    I cannot be taken

  2. I’m sure you wouldn’t believe it
    Anymore than I could
    I’m back in this circle
    Trying to make a door out of a window

    I’m what you’d call a “wanna-be”
    That’s one thing I never meant to be
    But I’d compromise those lines
    For a vertical look from your eyes

    Whisper your lies again
    Stow them away in my ears
    Make sure this time you mean it—
    This time you’ll mean it
    I’ll be sure
    To turn your words to truth

    Climbing out of my skin
    Re-adjust and get back in
    Anything to be someone I’m not
    The one I envied, the one I want to be just like

    I’m what you’d call a “wanna-be”
    That’s one thing I never meant to be
    But I’d compromise those lines
    For a vertical look from your eyes

    Whisper your lies again
    Stow them away in my ears
    Make sure this time you mean it—
    This time you’ll mean it
    I’ll be sure
    To turn your words to truth

    Dream not as I was
    But who I am becoming
    Becoming something from a true dream
    Leaving this nightmare life

    Whisper your lies again
    Stow them away in my ears
    Make sure this time you mean it—
    This time you’ll mean it
    I’ll be sure
    To turn your words to truth

     

  3. New Song Preview(:

    I’m a little bit stronger
    For a little bit longer
    But I still need you
    Will you show me the way to your heart
    I don’t know how to let go
    I don’t know how to win you over
    I should’ve known by now

     

  4. The clock is ticking
    Much too loud
    My brain is thinking much too hard
    I had a dream last night
    You weren’t around to save me
    Suffocated in my sleep last night
    Where were you to save me?
    Life isn’t fair anymore
    The cheaters seem to win
    Bigger than the winners
    And though they say it’s all good
    In the end
    I’m not ready for the end
    Until you come around
    Come and save me
    From myself
    Come and save me
    From you
    They say it’s all good
    In the end
    Don’t let this be
    Our end
    It’s in your hands
    You have all control
    Don’t let it end tonight

     

  5. Read Between the Lines

    I think I lost you
    In all the uses of the word
    I think you loved me
    But that season is far too gone
    And I can’t see
    Past these mirrors
    Come and make things clearer

    I’ve completely lost my head this time
    Where did you go?
    I’ve completely lost all my control
    I need something to hold on to
    Something to hold on to

    Photograph those moments
    Save them forever
    Something to remind us
    It wasn’t all a waste
    Keep those secrets in a little book
    Bound with all your lies
    This time
    You read between the lines

    There’s a time
    For letting go and forgetting
    And there’s a time
    For forgiving and remembering
    I can’t seem
    To distinguish between the two
    The smoke is fogging up my view
    Come and make things clearer

    I’ve completely lost my head this time
    Where did you go?
    I’ve completely lost all my control
    I need something to hold on to
    Something to hold on to

    Photograph those moments
    Save them forever
    Something to remind us
    It wasn’t all a waste
    Keep those secrets in a book
    Bound with all your lies

    This time, read between the lines

  6. Untitled Song

    Rainy night, typical ending scene
    All I’m thinking of is you thinking of me
    My mind is wasting away on what will never be
    My heart is wishing the rain would wipe it clean  

    Maybe someday I’ll remember you
    No other could make me believe a lie like that  

    You’ll find a way
    To erase the memory of me
    I’ll find a way
    To be okay
    A tunnel with a light
    A sea with a horizon
    Nothing comes as a surprise
    Anymore

    I can’t smell your cologne
    On my clothes anymore
    Only through mere memory
    My sweatshirt remembers your name

    Maybe someday you’ll remember me
    And the lie we lived  

    You’ll find a way
    To erase the memory of me
    I’ll find a way
    To be okay
    A tunnel with a light
    A sea with a horizon
    Nothing comes as a surprise
    Anymore

  7. Untitled Song in Progress

    I’m not superstitious
    But maybe the constellations
    Could tell us our future
    And I’m not cliche
    I just mimic what they all say
    I think I’m smart
    Though I can’t seem to figure you out

    And I can’t keep changing my ways

    When you notice me for me
    And ignore all they say
    Give me a call
    And I’ll be on my way I think I want to call you “home”

    I’m not romantic
    But I love Teddy bears and chocolates
    I’m independent
    When I have someone to rely on
    I’m not what they say
    So boy, won’t you stay?

    And I can’t keep changing my ways

    When you notice me for me
    And ignore all they say
    Give me a call
    And I’ll be on my way I think I want to call you “home”

    I’m not confusing
    But neither am I simple
    I’m not what they say
    I’m not what they say
    When you notice me for me
    And ignore all they say
    Give me a call
    And I’ll be on my way
    I think I want to call you “home”
    Will you be there when I come home?

  12. Your voice is lost in the crash of the waves

    Your breath, taken away with the wind

    The sun has shined away your soul

    You belong to them more than to me

  13. I Will Be Yours

    After my trip around the world

    I’ll return to your arms

    When I tire of being independent

    To you I’ll belong

    After my strength has run out

    Your arms will revive me

    I will be yours

    -

    My head on your chest 

    Is all that I need

    Hearing your heart go ‘beat, beat, beat’

    Mine cries ‘protect me, protect me, protect me’

    -

    When you laugh I can’t help but smile

    Your smile inspires me to dream

    Don’t leave for I’ll waste my time pretending

    You’ve come back to me

    -

    Keep letting me be me

    Giving me the option to be free

    I’ll always return to you
